Random D Cup News & Resemblances

Posted by gauloises1 on March 3, 2010

First up: further to my previous post about this tie, the Israeli team are due to arrive in Coquimbo on Wednesday. They’ve been stuck in Buenos Aires up till now which only gives them two days to train – and consequently allows them to ask for the tie to be postponed, as they are theoretically guaranteed four days. I’m not clear whether the ITF are obliged to grant the request, and in any case the tie would only be postponed until Saturday or Sunday. Still, that could be an important day or two.

Secondly, further to the tweeting of a couple of the Indian players, Nikolay Davydenko is in serious doubt for the Russia-India tie due to a wrist injury sustained in Rotterdam (either I already blogged this or I’m having major deja vu). According to Tarpischev, “his chances are very, very small“. If Kolya can’t play, he’ll be replaced by Igor Andreev.

Thirdly, the U.S. team have arrived in Serbia.

Welcome to Belgrade, boys.

Go with me here: Patrick McEnroe = Joss Whedon.

Are you coming with me?

Anyway, let’s be honest. This whole post was basically an excuse for me to indulge in one of my favourite things: photos of Novak Djokovic wearing his glasses.

Go with me here: Novak Djokovic in glasses = grown up Harry Potter.

Are you coming with me now?

    god, I love those spectacles on him. and Tipsy in his goofy goggles! two for the price of one. I’ve always wondered, though, how bad is Novak’s eyesight anyway? it’s just kind of unusual to see a tennis player wearing glasses.

    Hot damn, Novak looks pretty damn good in glasses. Sexy specs!

    The older guy in those pics with Novak is Nikola Pilic. He’s back to assisting Serbian DC team, so his spat with Nole’s dad is clearly bygones.

    Right when the first picture loaded, I thought the person between Isner and Querrey was Kim Clijsters. Don’t judge me.

    I feel terribly for finding Novak in glasses so flippin’ hot.

    Seeing Johny and Sammy in their DC get-up makes me a little teary-eyed. I feel like a proud mama. Or….girlfriend. Or…..well, gosh, I can’t think of anything that doesn’t make me sound creepy.

    It just makes me happy. I hope they have a good showing, I know this means a lot to both of them.

    And I know I talk about it all the time, but seriously- Johny was ranked 144 a year ago, and now he’s the #1 singles player on the DC team. It gives me warm fuzzies. Everywhere.

    Oh, and yes- I like all guys in glasses (am I alone on that? It’s just- super sexy) and they look really amazing on Djoko.

    Novak in glasses, speaking his native tongue = very very hot. Damn him he looks good!

  8. Master Ace said

    The tie in Chile will start on Saturday instead of Friday per ITF due to the impact of the earthquake.

  9. Master Ace said

    See Professor Djokovic is checking out the conditions on the court laughing in the process.

  10. neil in toronto said

    *adjusting specs* why yes, men in glasses ARE sexy :P! LOL

  11. harini said

    Nole in glasses. Love it.

  12. Ellen said

    Just nickname him “Spexy” already !! lol

    Sorry if this has already been posted but it looks like Nalbandian will play against Sweden after all.
